    • Ray Shero may succeed Bryan Murray as GM
      It's thought that former Pittsburgh Penguins GM Ray Shero may have the "inside track" to succeed Ottawa Senators' GM Bryan Murray after the season.

      Advice: It's no secret that Bryan Murray has Stage Four colon cancer and plans to step down at the end of the season, but what you may not know is that Ray Shero has a relationship with Sens president Cyril Leeder. Which is on top of Shero's experience as an assistant GM during the Sens' early years. While "no succession plans have been announced in Ottawa," it seems as though all of the ingredients for Murray's successor is in place. Keep this in mind until you see the ink dry. Rotoworld.com

    • Daniel Sedin scores goal in loss to Minnesota
      Daniel Sedin scored a goal in Vancouver's 4-2 loss to Minnesota on Sunday afternoon.

      Advice: Sedin and Ronald Kenins scored just over a minute apart in the third period to cut Minnesota's lead to 3-2. Unfortunately for the Canucks, they were unable to complete the comeback. The 34-year-old has 10 goals and 41 points in 48 games this season. This was Daniel's first goal in his last 10 games. Rotoworld.com

    • Kassian, Weber, Stanton all scratched vs Wild
      Zack Kassian was made a surprise healthy scratch on Sunday afternoon, he'll join Yannick Weber and Ryan Stanton in the stands against Minnesota.

      Advice: Well if that doesn't stir up the rumor mill, nothing will. Kassian has just two goals and six points in this very disappointing season, and he owns a $1.75M cap hit for another season. Weber and Stanton, as desirable as they may be, currently share Kassian's status for your fantasy squad as non-viable. Rotoworld.com

    • Carter Hutton and Preds blank Penguins
      Carter Hutton stopped all 21 shots he faced in Sunday's 4-0 win over Pittsburgh.

      Advice: Hutton has been very average playing behind Pekka Rinne this year, but he turned in a solid performance against the Penguins on Sunday afternoon. The 29-year-old is 3-4-4 with a 2.69 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage. He was named the game's first star. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: The 27-year-old has missed Arizona's last two games because of an upper-body injury. He has eight goals and 24 points in 37 games this season. He should be considered day-to-day at this point. Rotoworld.com

      Justin Peters allowed four goals on 40 shots in Washington's 4-3 loss to St. Louis on Sunday.

      Advice: Peters made some key saves when the game was close, but he was unable to pick up the win. As good as starter Braden Holtby has been for Washington, Peters has been nothing more than average. His record falls to 2-5-1 with a 3.58 goals-against-average and a .870 save percentage. He has lost three straight decisions, and he hasn't won a game since November 8th. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Braden Holtby was fantastic in a 1-0 overtime loss to Montreal on Saturday, but the Capitals will give him a rest today. Peters is 2-4-1 with a 3.52 goals-against-average and a .864 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

      Nicklas Grossmann missed his 10th consecutive game on Saturday, but he could return as soon as Thursday.

      Advice: Grossmann suffered the shoulder injury in a game against Washington on January 8th. The 30-year-old is more of a defensive defenseman, so his fantasy upside is limited. Rotoworld.com

      Bobby Ryan scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 7-2 win over Arizona.

      Advice: The 27-year-old has now collected two points in three consecutive games. Ryan did all his damage in the third period, as his goal gave Ottawa a 4-1 lead early in the final frame. He also assisted on Ottawa's final goal which was scored by Erik Karlsson. Ryan has 14 goals and 37 points in 45 games. Rotoworld.com

      The New York Islanders' special teams let them down in Saturday's 4-1 loss to Detroit on Saturday afternoon.

      Advice: The Islanders went 1-for-4 on the man-advantage but they allowed Detroit to score two power play goals. The Wings added another goal just after time expired on a New York penalty. "Special teams hurt us again," said forward John Tavares. "We have to be better on the PK and the power play has to generate more." Rotoworld.com

    • Benoit Pouliot stays on top line once more
      Benoit Pouliot remained on the top line with Taylor Hall out of action.

      Advice: Hall has missed the last three games with a bone bruise on his leg and Pouliot has taken his spot on the top line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle. That could end on Monday as Hall could return to play in San Jose. Pouliot has 11 goals and 17 points in 32 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Jordan Leopold plays forward on Saturday
      Jordan Leopold played left wing on Saturday for the first time in his NHL career.

      Advice: Well at least it was the first time in his NHL career that he played up front as he was a late addition to the lineup for the ailing Matt Calvert. Leopold played 8:27 minutes with a couple of hits on the fourth line. He has only three points in 21 games this season. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 4:19 am
    • Matt Calvert out with illness
      Matt Calvert missed Saturday's game with an illness.

      Advice: Calvert has been ill for about a month now and had to switch anti-biotics as the first batch did not work. He suffered a setback on Saturday and was unable to go as he was coughing too much. Consider him day-to-day. He has six goals and 12 points in 38 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Martin Hanzal questionable for Sunday
      Martin Hanzal (upper body) is questionable for Sunday's game in Montreal.

      Advice: Hanzal missed Saturday's game in Ottawa and will be a game time decision in the afternoon contest. Hanzal is a much better fantasy own in daily transaction leagues as he gets hurt way too much to be effective in weekly transaction pools. He has 24 points, 31 penalty minutes, 85 shots on goal and 105 hits in 37 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Scrivens wilts in third period of Oilers loss
      Ben Scrivens gave up four goals on 33 shots in Edmonton’s 4-2 loss to the Flames on Saturday night.

      Advice: A crushing defeat for the Oilers, who had a 2-0 at the start of the third period. The Flames scored four goals on 12 shots in the final frame. Scrivens has one win in his last five games. He has a 3.05 goals-against average and .894 save percentage this season. Rotoworld.com

    • John Klingberg erupts for 2G, 2A in DAL win
      John Klingberg’s four-point night led the Stars to a 5-2 win over the Jets on Saturday.

      Advice: Klingberg scored twice and had two assists, in addition to two penalty minutes, a plus-two rating and two shots on goal in 22:38. Just 22 years old, he has shown in his short time in the NHL that he has the makings of a pretty good offensive blueliner. Klingberg has seven goals and 20 points in 34 games, so he’s certainly worth a bench addition, at least. Shawn Horcoff, Patrick Eaves and Jason Spezza picked up the other goals. Tyler Seguin registered three helpers. Rotoworld.com

      Jordan Leopold will see his first game since Dec. 13th, 2014 on Saturday night against Tampa Bay. A span of 17 games.

      Advice: With Matt Calvert too sick to play tonight, Coach Richards will go with seven defensemen instead. Leopold is that seventh d-man. In 20 games this season, 13 with Columbus, the veteran defender has three points, 11 PIMs, 16 hits, and 28 blocks. Rotoworld.com

    • Martin Hanzal day-to-day, won't play Saturday
      The Arizona Coyotes announced that Martin Hanzal won't play on Saturday because of an upper-body injury.

      Advice: Hanzal is considered day-to-day. Hanzal has 24 points, 31 PPP, 85 SOG and 105 hits in 37 games so far this season. Injuries have been a snag for him for some time, which maybe shouldn't be surprising considering the towering center's rough style. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Hutton is 2-4-4 this season with an .893 save percentage and 2.96 goals against average. Nashville might be in trouble if Hutton has to tend the net for much longer. Marek Mazanec will likely get the start on Friday in Colorado. Rotoworld.com

    • Ben Scrivens makes 18 saves in victory
      Ben Scrivens made 18 saves in Edmonton's 3-2 victory over Buffalo on Thursday night.

      Advice: A win is a win is a win, but now Edmonton sits four points back of Buffalo for the last in the NHL. Or, the most likely team to decide between Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel. Scrivens meanwhile was solid in net, allowing one legit goal to Matt Fraser and one weird goal to Tyler Myers on 20 shots. Scrivens improves 9-16-7 with 101 goals against through 36 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • John Tavares extends points streak in loss
      John Tavares had a goal and an assist in the Islanders' 5-2 loss to Boston on Thursday night.

      Advice: The pair of points extended the 24-year-old's streak to five straight games on the scoresheet. In that span Tavares has four goals and five assists for nine points, just a few shy of his output at Sunday's All Star Game. The captain will look to get his team on track for Saturday night's game against the Red Wings. Rotoworld.com

    • Jordan Leopold scratched on Thursday
      Jordan Leopold, Cody Goloubef and Jack Skille will all be healthy scratches against Florida on Thursday.

      Advice: The Blue Jackets acquired Leopold in a trade earlier this season. The 34-year-old veteran had a 35 point season with the Sabres back in 2010-11, but he won't come close to producing numbers like that again. Both Skille and Goloubef have no fantasy relevance. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 4:38 pm
    • Carter Hutton will face Blues on Thursday
      Carter Hutton is expected to get the start in Thursday's game against St. Louis.

      Advice: Predators' starter Pekka Rinne will miss a fifth consecutive game because of a lower body injury. Hutton has seen some playing time in each of those five games. The 29-year-old is a huge downgrade on Rinne so you can expect the Predators to slid until their starting goaltender gets back. Hutton has a 2-4-3 record with a 2.87 goals-against-average and a .895 save percentage. Rotoworld.com

      Thursday, 11:05 am
    • Ben Scrivens hates tanking talk
      Ben Scrivens hates the notion that the Oilers should tank in order to get a better draft spot.

      Advice: "If anybody even insinuated to me that I was trying not to win, you'd have a fight I think," Scrivens said. "That's the most unbelievable thing you can say to a professional: try not to win this game." Scrivens added that it's "mind-blowing" that there's people out there thinking that the Oilers aren't trying to win. While it's not hard to buy into the idea that the Oilers are genuinely trying to win, they nevertheless bring this line of questionable upon themselves. Year after year they fail to be even a mediocre squad on the ice. They leave their fanbase hoping for some freshly drafted player to come save them because those currently on the roster haven't been able to prove that they're the answer. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Connauton (illness) misses practice
      Kevin Connauton missed Wednesday's practice due to an illness.

      Advice: Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards is still optimistic about Connauton's chances of playing Thursday, but we're listing him as day-to-day to be safe. Connauton has seven goals and 15 points in 34 games this season. With Ryan Murray potentially returning, Connauton's condition could impact whether or not Dalton Prout plays. Rotoworld.com

    • Nicklas Grossmann is probable Thursday
      Nicklas Grossmann will probably rejoin the Flyers' lineup on Thursday.

    • Daniel Sedin and Canucks shut out
      Daniel Sedin and the Canucks were held to just 17 shots in a 4-0 loss to Anaheim on Tuesday.

      Advice: The Canucks managed just seven shots through the second and third periods of this sloppy effort. Frederik Andersen was asked to make a couple solid saves but the Canucks were mostly punch-less in their first game back from the break. Daniel Sedin has been held off the score sheet in two straight games but still has 39 points in 46 games. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 10:39 pm
    • Carter Hutton and Preds outlast Avs
      Carter Hutton allowed three goals on just 24 shots Tuesday, but skated away with a win as the Predators upended Colorado in overtime by a score of 4-3.

      Advice: Hutton has made four starts in place of the injured Pekka Rinne and has been mediocre at best in those outings, but playing behind such a potent supporting cast helps him retain his fantasy value. It's unclear whether he or Marek Mazanec will get the nod in Nashville's next game. Rotoworld.com

    • John Tavares scores in win over Blueshirts

      Benoit Pouliot will skate on the first line to the left of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle on Tuesday night against the Minnesota Wild.

    • Carter Hutton to face Colorado on Tuesday
      Carter Hutton will face the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night.

      Advice: Hutton will be making his fourth start since Pekka Rinne went down, allowing eight goals and going 1-1-1 through his first three starts. Last year, when Hutton played 40 games, he went 20-11-4 with 90 goals against. Rotoworld.com

    • Klingberg, Schlemko, Cole scratched vs. Habs
      John Klingberg, David Schlemko, and Erik Cole will be scratched against Montreal on Tuesday night.

      Advice: Coach Ruff appears to be sending the rookie Klingberg a message on playing better with this benching, as Klingberg has six goals, 18 points, 20 PIMs, 30 hits, and 40 blocks through his first 32 career games. Cole also checks in with some value, he has 12 goals and 23 points with 102 hits through 44 games this season. Rotoworld.com

    • John Tavares jokes about All-Star MVP snub
      John Tavares wasn't upset over being snubbed for the All-Star MVP.

      Advice: Tavares had four goals, but the award and car that came with it instead went to hometown favorite Ryan Johansen, as per a fan vote. "I had my parents, two sisters and girlfriend here, and they all said they wanted a new car," Tavares said. "So it's almost good that I didn't win." He's the sixth player in history to get four goals in a NHL All-Star Game. Rotoworld.com

    • John Tavares scores four in Team Toews' win
      John Tavares scored four goals in Team Toews' 17-12 win over Team Foligno in Sunday's NHL All-Star game.

      Advice: The four goals tie an NHL All-Star game record which he now shares with five others. The 17 goals scored by Team Toews and the 29 goals combined are both All-Star game records. Flyers' forward Jakub Voracek led all skaters with six points, while Jonathan Toews (Blackhawks) and Patrice Bergeron (Bruins) had five points each. Rotoworld.com

    • No word yet about possible postponement Tues
      Up to two feet of snow is expected to hit the New York City and Long Island area starting on Monday morning, but there's still no word if the Islanders will take on the Rangers Tuesday evening.

      Advice: While those involved in the actual traveling won't appreciate the "wait and see approach", it makes sense to first see how the five boroughs and two counties respond to the downfall. At the earliest, we'll know Monday afternoon. The Islanders lead the Metropolitan with 63 points, three more ahead of Pittsburgh, and five ahead of the Rangers, who currently own the third slot in the Metro. Rotoworld.com

    • Tavares: Isles improved due to acquisitions
      John Tavares says the vast improvement of the Islanders who were the 26th best team last season but are currently fourth best in the NHL, have to do with the acquisitions of Jaroslav Halak, Johnny Boychuck, Nick Leddy and others.

      Advice: Garth Snow was certainly busy in the off-season and the lead up to the start of the regular season. "You look at the depth of our team and the contributions everyone has made in all places -- up front, the back end and goaltending,'' Tavares said. "You really see everyone has kind of identified with the way they need to play, within the team concept. "It's a great mix." Of course, it never hurts to have a great talent like Tavares on your team. Rotoworld.com

    • Bobby Ryan doesn't want to be the last pick
      Bobby Ryan doesn't want to be picked last at Friday's All-Star Draft.

      Advice: "I'm looking forward to it, I'm just hoping I don't go last," said Ryan, with a laugh. "I've got to text (Getzlaf) to make sure we're still friends, because I know he's got a little say in the (Team Toews) team. I said I would be a mid-round steal. That would be ideal for me." The final pick in the draft does get a new car to help soften the ego blow. This will be Ryan's first All-Star Game appearance. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 22, 3:55 pm
    • Bobby Ryan sets up two goals in win vs. Leafs
